A 60-year-old Lincoln man was arrested on Wednesday morning after an argument with his roommate devolved into a second-degree assault, according to police. 

Brent Neverve hit the 41-year-old woman several times with a crowbar, LPD Officer Erin Spilker said. 

Police responded to a residence near Eighth and H streets at around 5:30 a.m. on Wednesday, where the woman displayed injuries consistent with her report, Spilker said. She did not require medical treatment, Spilker said. 

Neverve was arrested on suspicion of second-degree assault and taken to the Lancaster County jail.
